Default Re: Making Contact

I sent an email to a bicycle advocate in Austin texas, along with a picture of the Atomic BB. I ask if he advocates for bicycles like mine.

After a few days he sent me back a reply saying that according to (his interpretation of) the legal definition of a bicycle in Texas, my bike isn't considered a bicycle LOL. He came to that conclusion after looking at the statues for electric motor bicycles. Texas doesn't recognize gas powered motor bicycles, so there's no statues for them, but they do have some statutes that copy federal law about electric motor bicycles. He thinks that since my bike doesn't appear to be electric, it's not a bicycle LOL.
